RIDE LEADERS' CORNER

We meet second Wednesday of each month. 

Beach Cities Health District, in the basement, 630PM.

Next meeting - November 13th.

******************************************

AVOID THE RIGHT HOOK



**************************************

WHO IS TBD?

"TBD" is now your Club's most popular ride leader. TBD has been showing up more and more often as a designated ride leader on our Saturday rides. Who is this mystery person?  

A) Thomas Byrne Dunne

B) Tikiri Banda Dissanayake

C) Tegan Bennett Daylight

D) No One

The correct answer is "D" -No One. That is because "No One" has signed up to lead a particular scheduled ride. How can that be? Your Club is in need of new ride leaders!  Qualifications are: 1) able to ride a bike 2) read a cue sheet and 3) a desire to give back to others.  You do not need to be an expert mechanic,  possess pro-level handling skills, or even a keen sense of direction (helpful, though). 

Interested? Curious?  Come to our monthly ride leader meeting, or simply reach out to another ride leader.

**************************************

SCHEDULE NOTE

There will be no NightRiderz ride on Thanksgiving Day.

However, join Tim O'Crowley at 7AM, Malaga Cove for a quick ride before you settle in for turkey and football.

L4-WLA COLLEGE

An out-n-back, more-or-less, along the bike path to West LA College.  37 miles, 1k feet led by TBD.

When it is either actively raining or the ride route has wet roads, or otherwise unsafe riding conditions, it is club policy to cancel a club ride.  Club members may still choose to meet and ride in these conditions; however, the ride will not be considered an official club ride.
